I just got a Garmin nuvi 1300 for Christmas and it has worked just fine for almost 2 weeks. Then yesterday, out of the blue, it shut off for a few hours and would not turn back on. It did the same thing...


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garmin c530 powers up breifly then shuts down


The problem is with the battery, DC will not fully charge the battery to its required capicty to work. You need an AC charger and to charge it fully ( 10 hrs Max) and then try it. It needs a lot of power to drive the screen and connect to satellites.
Invest in an AC charger and all should work properly

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


Sounds like your battery died and there's no juice to it. When the battery is low, the unit shuts itself off and has a hard time starting up. If possible, try plugging in your unit with a USB cable from the computer and leave the computer on for a few hours and see if that doesn't solve the problem. When in the car, sometimes the cigarette lighter socket comes loose.

Regarding your i3, the USB drivers must be loaded BEFORE you connect your garmin. If you do not have your USB drivers, you can download them from:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00434-00

Also, why would you need to upload maps? The i3 comes pre-loaded.

Old map installed in new unite


I googled garmin c330 software update and went to a garmin site for this same purpose. I had no problem getting a current update (within the last year) and at no charge. There is also a user forum that is very informative. I travel extensively and have used mine for a year now. I wish I had bought it sooner Ray

How do you load maps? and are these Garmin maps. I try to keep the Zumo original and use an SD card for extra maps. Did you try this yet? And if you are using SD cards, try a different brand/quality. I had some lockups with crappy budget cards. Kingston, Sandisk and some other A brands work fine!
